Barcelona may have began their season slowly, but the Catalan giants showed no sign of weariness against Sevilla in La Liga this weekend, thumping Julen Lopetegui’s men 4-0 at the Camp Nou.
Will Barcelona win La Liga this season?
Goals from Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal, Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi secured a vital three points for the Blaugrana on home turf, which sees Ernesto Valverde’s men rise to second in La Liga, behind current leaders Real Madrid by just two points.
Barca look an invigorated side with Lionel Messi back in the starting XI. The Argentine had missed large parts of the campaign with a calf injury, but returned to the fold last Wednesday, putting in a top-class performance as the Spaniards came from a goal behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1.
Messi was again influential on Sunday evening, scoring Barca’s fourth of the game with a stunning free-kick, though it was another player who stole the show with a mature performance in central midfield.
Arthur has impressed for Barcelona so far this term, scoring two goals and registering three assists (per Transfermarkt). The 23-year-old notched two of those three assists against Sevilla, and fans of the club have been quick to praise him on Twitter…
